for sandy on the east pork inhere's a lot of that. call your delegates. my question to you, in regard to what i've heard on president obama in regard to social security is trying to incorporate changes cpi -- chained cpi. a person would pay $1,200 more in one year and over. 30 years, $28,000. could you go in depth on that for me? guest: there are different ways of computing the consumer price index. one of those is to change how much we saved for food and shelter and so forth for the proportions of the previous year as opposed to a base year. that gives you a somewhat lower rate of inflation. economists would argue that is more realistic and a fairer way to index and the government benefits. i have a problem with that. as an economist, i'm interested in perfection of measurement. as a guide u.s. to operate in washington, i am also concerned with equity. older folks really have a different basket of goods than and people. when was the last time grandma and grandpa went out and bought a suite of bedroom furniture. young folks do that. where is older folks spend much more in health care.

. exactly. grab a pencil... tips and other useful information coming up next. here's an idea from sandy terhell from afton, minnesota. so simple, so easy. she wanted to mark straight quilting lines on the quilt she was making for her granddaughter. no marker that she had really showed up well, so she cut strips of fabric, pinned them to the quilt and machine quilted right along the edge. unpinned them, no marks, no problem. speaking of straight lines betty kelly from crestline, ohio, says no matter how carefully she sews she seems to get her strip sets crooked so to solve the problem, she fastens a tape measure to her ironing board and presses the strip sets using the tape edge as a guide and no more crooked strip sets. she's blocking them as she goes. here's a big photograph from trae mcneill from muleshoe, texas. muleshoe! she says, "i don't want to take my quilting gloves off every time i need to change a bobbin, unsew a seam, pick off a loose thread." so she cut the fingertips out of her gripper gloves. now she can do the fine-motion things without taking
